Postal Service.

inspired by Belen, L. Nicole, Megan, & of course the dedicated to (mainly) mail blog of Bianca's, i've decided to post some pretty mail i received before i left Virginia.

pretty kraft bags i ordered from mr rabbit sir / necklace i bought as a gift from Oh Hello Friend (i always love her packaging!) / teeny handmade cute notecards from moncy3.

a lovely birthday pressie from sweet Erin.

i wore the pretty ruby red jewelry she gave me on my work interview and now she's my lady luck. thank you erin! i love the stickers on the envelope.

Lauren Scott made me jump up and down with first the Marilyn postcard (one of my fave images) and second- a book about Texas vampires! i mean how much more perfect for me can you get?! it promises to be erotic too... i can't wait to read it! and Lauren, it meant even more to me because i never got a book in this book swap, and it was (of course) a swap i was looking forward to. THANK YOU extra. I luuuuuurve it! i really did jump up and down. Your mail is always exciting to get!

a thank-you card from saltina that i am going to frame. (it's one of her iphone images) + she included one of diana's notecards {i'm a huge fan of our city lights} / a pop up birthday card from my fellow Virginia blogger & friend Cynthia.

and these i got awhile back, but i always love seeing letters addressed to "the future mrs. maxham." *smiles. From the beautiful Belen / Krissa.

i never take pictures of outgoing letters, unless they're swaps but here's a few i remembered to snap:
2 are postcrossings & one is to Erin.

and from Bianca's blog, a few photos she snapped of the letter/stationary i sent her.

i love happy mail!!! some of you may be getting Texas postcards from me... check your mailboxes. xo

Micaela dahling, you look beeeeautiful in that red necklace! When I saw it, I knew it had to be yours. It just had you written all over it. So glad it brought you good luck (not that you needed it!)

Excited about my letter! Can't wait for it to come.

Hope you are enjoying continuing birthday celebrations in your beloved Texas!

L. Nicole said...

Awww, I'm so happy you liked the book! That it was actual 'jump up and down' exciting. :D Means so much that you really enjoyed receiving it. <3 Let me know how it is though, cause like I mentioned, I never really even opened it; so therefore no clue as to plot points and such. :P And thank you so much for saying my mail is 'exciting to get', it put a huge smile on my face. <3 <3
